It looks like Ubuntu's driver selection mechanism doesn't think the
intel driver can drive that chip:
(II) No matches found for this device in /usr/share/xserver-xorg/pci
Which is pretty lols since it means they managed to introduce new
failure modes. Outstanding work, cadet.
Simplest thing to do is remove the vesa driver, but that'll only work if
your kernel includes Pineview support, and I don't remember if 2.6.33
and/or Ubuntu's version of it includes Pineview. Think it does though.
